Dear Dr. Seckel, I am considering laser liposuction. I have a small amount of belly fat and loose skin on my tummy after having 3 children. I also would like a little fat removed from my hips and thighs. I have read a lot about laser liposuction and it sound like it is a better treatment than the older liposuction. I have read that skin tightening is better with laser liposuction and the skin is left smoother. I have read about SmartLipo, Cool lipo, SlimLipo and Lipotherme. I am not sure which ones are available in the Boston area. They all sound great on the internet. Is there a big difference between one laser liposuction machine and another? How does one make the right choice? Thank you, Michelle, Boston, Massachusetts.Thursday, March 12th, 2009
There is a great deal of enthusiasm for laser liposuction today. There are some potential advantages to the laser liposuction technique, but the most important thing for you is to find an experienced, expert, board certified plastic surgeon that you are comfortable with and trust.
